Early Childhood Studies (0-8 years)

This course will enable you to develop your understanding of early childhood from birth to eight years old, discovering how children develop, learn and think. You'll explore the importance of meeting children's needs and how these needs can be met. You'll consider the challenges and opportunities in children's services, and look at childhood from a range of perspectives. We'll encourage you to use your own experiences in early years to enhance your knowledge and develop your understanding of early childhood.

Dance and Movement Studies

If you love dance and think it's played an important part in your own development, and you want to develop your skills so that you can work creatively with others, then this course is for you.

We'll encourage you to broaden your knowledge and experience of dance whilst giving you the support to develop in your area of interest. You'll build your skills in choreography and improvisation by working individually, and then moving on to work in small groups, and finally, you'll give a public performance in stage three.
